The Giro Bello (In Italian - A Beautiful Ride) annual bicycle ride was conducted by the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa, California - in the heartland of the wine country of the USA. It was a meticulously planned and a fun filled event that was organized to military precision with more than 500 cyclists participating in the event. The full circuit was 100 kms and a majority of the cyclists completed the full circuit.

The ride was over in the afternoon and there was a sumptuous spread for the lunch with a variety of food, desserts, drinks and of course chilled beer that was so welcome in the hot Californian weather. There was also a band playing country music and at times some fast numbers that further enhanced the mood of the afternoon.

I had the occasion to meet many enthusiastic cyclists from India who live and work in California and all of them completed the 100 kms circuit in great style.

Enjoy the pictures.
